    Will I Ever Achieve That???

    So, I want friends who would never leave me under any circumstances unless they are dead. Is it too much to ask for? I don't think so.

    Meh..

    I've never had a friendship that lasted any longer than 2-4 years. We'd meet and be 'besties forever' until we went to seperate schools and completely stopped talking. I've always lost people like that. It used to be a sad goodbye, but now I expect it. It's happened before and I...

    I miss my (best) friend =::::( I cannot move on.

    I know it's stupid to be wailing about a friend since a very long time. But I can't help it. I miss him. It hurts so much. I miss having emotional support. Please please please come back.

    I don't care what you believe,

    what race you are, what your sexual orientation is, all I care about is your personality. Nice, funny, kind, caring, compassionate, sarcastic, humorous, and supportive are all I look for in someone:)

    who are current or past wearers of SLICK ballet shoes, slippers about their experiences about them sliding unexpectedly and such, and whether you currently still wear them, or have kept them from your school years.

    Didn't Last Forever

    I always wished for a long lasting friendship. I had one but it only lasted for eight years until she died. It was one of the hardest time for me. No one can replace her but I do hope I find another friend as her.

    Lasting Friendships

    The only real lasting friendship I have is with my boyfriend.  I can tell anything to him , be myself in front of him , and always know he is there for me.  My "friends"  all left me either when I had my kids or once I got into the Juggalette lifestyle.

    HI ANYONE! I'd like to have a friend

    who I can tell everything to, and you could tell anything to me. I don't want this to be a quick thing. I am truly looking for genuine people. Preferably female, so I know how to talk to them, but anyone is okay! :)

    I'm not here to flirt or date I'm happily married. The hole in my life is people who want to take the time to get to know the real me, that I could share the deep thoughts and the trivial stuff too on occasion. My troubles here have been finding friends that understand I may not...

    Does anyone else think its hard to maintain an

    online friendship? Cause with me it's like trying to race a snail through a field of peanut butter. It just doesn't work.
